Moody’s raises India’s GDP forecast to 6.7% for 2023


Global rating agency Moody’s has raised India’s growth forecast to 6.7% from 5.5% for 2023.

At the same time though, it has lowered the GDP forecast for 2024 from 6.5% to 6.1%.

“Since the second quarter out performance creates a high base in 2023, we have lowered our 2024 growth forecast from 6.5 percent to 6.1 per cent. Given the robust underlying economic momentum, we also recognise further upside risk to India’s economic growth performance,” it said on Friday.

Moody’s 6.7% growth forecast for 2023 is slightly higher than RBI’s projection of 6.5% for 2023-24.

India has recorded a growth of 7.8% in the first quarter of the current fiscal, which was lower than RBI’s projection of 8% for the April-June period of 2023-24.
